Dreamer: Inspired By a True Story is about a broken-down racehorse trainer and his broken-down racehorse. Read Kidzworld's review to find out if you should check out this new flick starring Dakota Fanning!

Dreamer - Picking Up the Broken Pieces

The Crane family lives on the only horse farm in Kentucky that doesn't actually have a horse in the barn. Dad (Kurt Russell) is busy working as a racehorse trainer, mom works in a diner and Cale (Dakota Fanning) dreams of nothing more than to spend some time with her dad. Her dream starts to come true when one of the horses that her dad trains gets injured in a race. Cale takes one look at Sonador (it's Spanish for "dreamer"), nicknamed Sonya for short, and convinces her dad to nurse her back to health.

Dreamer - Dare to Dream

Cale forms a close friendship with Sonya by bringing her cherry popsicles and chocolate cake. When Sonya is fully healed, the Cranes realize that she can race again and dream of entering her in the Breeders' Cup Classic. Dreamer is your typical underdog sports story, so the ending won't shock you. But, it'll definitely pull at your heartstrings. You'll laugh, you'll cry and you'll cheer for the little girl with big dreams of helping her dad with a broken spirit and her horse with a broken leg.

Dreamer - Bottom Line

Like the title suggests, Dreamer is an inspiring movie, but it also has its fair share of cheesy moments. But, we all need a little cheese in our diets once in awhile, so we recommend that you check out this feel-good flick with the fam before it races out of the theater.
